  • Description


    We are a small (spare-time) farm with around 9 cows, 9 chickens, 3 ducks, 2 cats, 1 dog and always a lot going on.

    “We” are Sandra & Helmut, both in our 50s, who thought that now all kids have moved out & besides having our own small business (special machine construction) we’d like to fill our afternoons and weekends with some meaningful & really pleasant work outdoors.

    Our property is located on the outskirts of a small town (~8.000 persons) in Lower Austria, surrounded by the most eastern mountains of the Alps. Besides situated rather rural, the next bigger towns can be easily reached by train (Wiener Neustadt 30mins // Vienna 1h).

    We would love some assistance with our little farm as we are both still working. You would be living in a small cottage in our garden (next to the swimming pond) which is equipped with it’s own bathroom and kitchen.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Besides accommodation in your own cottage we can provide you with the authentic rural Austrian experience (= occasional beer festivals, great local food, holidays & festivities) as well as guided “work” at our little farm.
    Naturally, German can be taught.

  • Help


    We’d wish for an outgoing and active traveller who can stay for a little while. Loving animals is a must - experience is not necessarily required.
    Also, there is always something going
    on (family gatherings, friends visiting etc. ) so it would be great if you like being around people. 😉
